About the Event

Join us for a special meetup this month. Drive through the history and future of autonomous vehicles. Panelists Dr. Jameson Wetmore,  Arizona State University, and Dr. Jan Becker, CEO and Co-Founder of Apex.AI and lecturer at Stanford University, discuss the past, present, and future of the autonomous world.

Dr. Jameson Wetmore is an associate professor in the School for the Future of Innovation in Society and co-director of the Center for Engagement and Training in Science and Society at Arizona State University.  He also wrote “Driving The Dream,” a compilation piece that looks back at 80 years of vision of automated vehicles. Dr. Jan Becker is President, CEO, and Co-Founder of Apex.AI, Inc. Dr. Becker has been a Lecturer at Stanford University for autonomous vehicles and driver assistance since 2010. Dr. Becker has written several blog posts on the history and future of automated vehicles.

The conversation covers what we have learned from the past and how we can use it to map the future of the autonomous world. The panel will share views on the motivation for autonomy, the timing, and progress in its current state, and what they predict will be the next phase in innovation.

You don’t want to miss it.
